Today, Beyond Paris 


This "Field of Flags" in Battery Park honors those whose lives were lost on 9/11 and those who tried to save them*.  There are over 3,000 flags, the stripes  are lists of names.  Additionally there are flags representing the 92 countries who shared in this loss.
*To see a special exhibit honoring 911 heroes, go to Joe McNally's blog...
and to Peter Turnley to see his 9/11 images and reflections. 

The new World Trade Center can be seen rising behind 
The Sphere 
a Fritz Koenig sculpture that originally occupied the plaza in front of the WTC.  The piece was damaged but not destroyed in the attack.

 How about inside out...

upside  down,

 or downside up?
